Based in Hampshire, UK.
‘oren’ has become a self-taught product of a need to translate internal creativity into physicality. The human form is the focal point of my design process, where my designs embody ethereality and the organic flow states of the natural world. I often also embed hard metals into soft fabrics to reflect the duality of creation and in turn generate a raw and subversive look.
I think it’s important to remember nature is precious and finite, hence why many of my designs are singular pieces. I extend my respect of the earth to ensuring sustainability and garment longevity take precedence throughout my process, where I work only with deadstock, industry surplus or salvaged materials.
